S. 2943: National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017

On Passage of the Bill in the Senate

Bill Passed · Jun 14, 2016 at 11:04 a.m. ET · Source:

This was a vote to pass S. 2943 (114th) in the Senate. The federal budget process occurs in two stages: appropriations and authorizations. This is an authorization bill, which directs how federal funds should or should not be used. (It does not set overall spending limits, however, which are the subject of appropriations bills.) Authorizations are typically made for single fiscal years (October 1 through September 30 of the next year) but are often renewed in subsequent law.

It was not the final Senate vote on the bill. See the history of S. 2943 (114th) for further details.

The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017 (H.R. 4909; NDAA 2017, Pub.L. 114-328) is a United States proposed federal bill which specifies the budget and expenditures of the United States Department of Defense (DOD) for Fiscal Year 2017.
